Running Accomplishments

Speedgoat 2013. It was my first 50k, and physically, the hardest day of my life. I was so green, I remember coming into the mile 23(?) aid station telling my husband that my right quad was about to shatter. He said, “That’s just a muscle cramp. Here…eat these potato chips, and get the hell out of here!”

Favorite Part About Being a Runner

Being outside!

Best Races

Best race experience was definitely San Juan Solstice 2014. Crossed the finish line after a long, fun day above timberline to find my mountain-man father crying, he was so proud! Now, if that doesn’t melt your heart…

Running Words of Wisdom

What I tell myself when I’m struggling: “It will get better. Probably. Maybe. And if not, just keep smiling.”
